And the Wembly Caution out of sugar magnolia. Alligator--Caution 8/23/68 Shrine Aud--companion to two from the vault. Alligator Caution Thelma theater 12-12-69. Lovelight from the same night. Smokesatack Lightning--hell any version of that!!! Bear's Choice is stupendous as is the one from Portchester Feb (19?)1971. 2-14-68 (the alligator jam is on Anthem). The Fillmore West from the box set--3-1-69? The Lovelight from 9-19-70, Easy Wind from 9-20. The list is long. What amazes me is how few songs were actually in his repetoire and how seldom many were done. Very few Smokestacks. Some, like It's a Man's Man's World came and went (sigh). check out 6-5-70 and 4-19-70 as well as Harpur.

I'll put up my cd choices if I have time tomorrow.

Am I wrong again (I'll stop now-promise) to say Jerry really dug and fed off Pig.

Jerr though of Pig as the leader--at least the frontman--of the band. And yes, Pig's delivery was so rough and gruff that they all turned it up a notch. Pig was da man.
